Daily Prompt: Astral
Whenever I come across the word Astral a few things start dangling in front of my eyes and the only thought that comes to mind is imaginary, fake and impossible. To me astral is something that is absolutely impossible. I relate astral to a few impossible things.
A sweet pollution-free morning where you can breathe fearlessly, walk, jog and do multiple things. Smoking and alcohol free generations is the next one to this list. Similarly, 100% literacy is again beyond a dream, sort of impossible, astral. A carefree and stress free youth doesn’t fail to find space in the list. There is a lack of leaders who would imitate to contribute for the betterment of this world.
There are a few more, with the rise in competition there is also a rise in dissatisfaction. The taste of success leads people to either become jealous of others or keep pulling down others so that they don’t become more successful. The increase in personal vehicles and due to that a huge increase in traffic (I really hope this one lowers down a little bit). It’s the era of women empowerment but each day more and more girls and women are losing their safety (I just can’t understand why a few men fail in respecting women).
A human race free of malnutrition, diseases and poverty is astral to me. A world free from global issues as well as sorrows is again astral to me. A world full of smiles and happiness is truly astral to me. I can’t even dream of such a world, I can only imagine of one. Why? I don’t have any answer to this question of mine.
I wish and hope that as I don’t fall back to make efforts towards a better tomorrow, there are people like me who are participating in any way they can in doing so.
Rise and shine.
